The Woodland Park Zoo's new meerkat exhibit returns to the zoo after a ten year absence, to a newly renovated space. The new exhibit will give park visitors an inside look at the animals' semi-arid savanna habitat of the Kalahari Desert in southern Africa. Visitors can watch as the meerkats scamper into their tunnels, nurse their young, or stand at attention. Eight meerkats will occupy the exhibit which opens on May 1, 2010.
